Such a pity that blood is a liquid.

If it were a gas, it would obey PV=nRT (the"ideal gas law"), and raising the temperature would raise its pressure.

As it is, raising the temperature of the situation just increases the volume of the container and lowers the pressure.

Poor Timmy. :(

So the BP in his torso and head drops precipitately.

That explains it.
He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

Well the blood goes somewhere else and he passes out. I wonder where the blood goes...

When it comes to blood-pressure shifts triggered by activity in the nervous system... it's like they've said for a long time. "What happens in vagus, stays in vagus."

Wait, don't otaku who love boobs and sexy stuff typically suffer from high blood pressure hence all the pressurized nosebleeds?

It's said, "Two heads are better than one!" but not if one of them hogs all the available blood flow.

Ah... those equations bring back memories... BAD memories of Navy Nuke School, but memories none the less... though back then we liked to call them:
The PerVerT Equations... rather than the "Ideal Gas Law"

Of course, of you change blood from a liquid to a gas, you get some interesting results! Check out the "For Example" section in this page.

That was most entertaining! I never did understand adiabatic heat transfer, but I got over it. :mrgreen:

Temperature is energy per unit volume. Squeeze it and temp goes up (less volume). Stretch it and temp goes down.

So, if you have something in that volume that needs to change state, like water vapor to liquid, you have to account for THAT energy as the temp changes with the volume change. Sort of like climbing a ladder in a moving elevator.

What happens if you climb a ladder in a moving elevator? Anything interesting?

Trying to climb a ladder, when the elevator is going down... that's not good, you'll never get out. It's down, down, down the dark ladder... you can come now or you can come later, what does it really matter?

Reminded of the time on a School Field Trip where I had in my hands a large plastic Syringe (minus needle) and it contained some water and air.

I stuck my thumb over the end of the tip and pulled the plunger out, only to be surprised by the water boiling inside the tube.

"Hey you guys!, Check this out!...".
